    Steelseries Siberia V2 if you want it all in one. AudioTechnica ATH-AD700 with a Zalman clip-on mic or Modmic. You can get the headphones used for ~$70 usually.

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    So... I do have somewhat of a hiccup. I ordered from Newegg on 10/12, which is in line with the rebate (link). But, on the link that you are supposed to go to on 4myrebate, it only lists it as ending purchases on 9/30 instead of 10/15 as in the pdf. Because of this, their system doesn't let...

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    915 would be the core. Yes, both core and memory are safe. I wouldn't go over 1500 on the memory though.

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    FYI, regarding my Toxic's OC, I overclocked it and got 955/1420. I've yet to continue pushing it further, just did a rough OC with 15 minutes of Furmark stability check. I haven't done any game stability tests yet. As for temperatures, I'm getting ~73C at 50% fan (getting quite loud at 50%...

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    Yes it came with Dirt 3. No Deus Ex. I used Trixx to save the bios. I haven't OC'ed it yet (haven't had the need to), but I will over the weekend and let you know the results. :)

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    Update for you: Got mine in today, put it in, saved the BIOS first (just in case), and then shut down and flipped the BIOS switch. Fortunately for me, it unlocked! Success! Now time to overclock. :D

    What is up with this 6970?

    The cooler is different, isn't it? The Toxic uses the vapor chamber cooler.

    Is my GTX 260 old?

    If you go 6950, get one with at least 2GB of memory. Not really, no. Marketing scheme. ;)

    Advice--best 2 GB Radeon 6950??

    If you get a XFX, at least get one with dual fan. The single fan versions run really hot apparently.

    GTX 570 3-way SLI - A good idea?

    In SLI, the vram doesn't add up since it runs parallel in each card. So it will be still equivalent to 1.2 GB of vram.

    Which graphics card(s) is best for me?

    Before, SSD size was like 32GB, but now you can easily get ones that are ~100GB or more. No reason not to put some of your most played games on there to load quicker. You can also use apps like SteamMover to switch between putting them on the SSD and HDD. Honestly, on a new build like...

    Making Final Decision On Best Video Card Option For New Rig - Need Your Expertise

    Don't forget the Sapphire 6950 Toxic 2GB as well. It's in stock at Newegg again. Sorry for giving you ANOTHER choice! :) I'm in your situation as well, and I just ordered one of the Toxics. It's a bit hard to tell what exactly BF3 will take to max out considering the beta was really buggy...

    Need Mechanical Keyboard Advice

    Well since money isn't a problem, and many many mechanical keyboards can be found for <$150, you really just should be looking at two factors. 1. Switch type 2. How much do you need macro? If you need macro really badly, then you don't really have a choice. Go with the BlackWidow. Stealth...

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    Trust me, I tried. http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/7563530.page EA has no clue what to do, and for the whole time during and after the beta, they have no idea how to solve it. Hopefully it'll be fixed on release? :rolleyes:

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    Yep, though BF3 will usually take all of the VRAM that is available to it, so you should hopefully see some improvement. I couldn't tell you for sure since the BF3 beta never ran on my system! Freaking Origin error. :rolleyes: As for the BIOS update, there definitely is one out, as the...

    i5-760@4ghz go 2700k now or wait for ivy?

    I don't think that you'll see a big difference if BF3 is really what you're looking at. I have an i7 920 at 4GHz and honestly, it's still really really fast. I don't plan on upgrading until Haswell. For BF3 your video card would probably be much more important. If I were doing a lot of...

    I doub that will happen though. Seems pretty late in its life cycle to make a new revision. The BIOSes nowadays are all fixed though, right?

    Sapphire 6950 Toxic Edition in stock @ Newegg

    I just ordered one too! Have been waiting for these to come up for a while. Does anyone know how the Vapor-X cooler on the Toxic compares to the MSI TF3? It was a tough decision going between the two, but the easy (hopefully) unlockability of the Toxic won over. I'm just a bit concerned...

    MSI 6950 Twin Frozr II 2gb Temps

    Just curious, since you seem to know a lot about fan technology, what types of fans are good regarding SLI/Crossfire if the slots are close (I have a EVGA X58 board), or is it just not possible with any fan? :p Of course, I realize the top one will get hotter in any situation.

    Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Announced for release on 11/11/11.

    Over time processing power will eventually be able to calculate all of that quickly, and programmers will program it. Or maybe I'm too optimistic. ;)

    is it worth upgrading 2 GTX 280 SLi?

    Totally understandable. Just putting it out there. :) Some companies are good about it (e.g. Kingston), some aren't. I think MSI is pretty good in regards to rebate though.

    i7 Gaming Build

    So the Noctua I mentioned in the first post is alright? Would it be decent with just one fan? I ask because it turns out there may be some clearance issues with the eVGA board's north bridge with a push-pull config.

    i7 Gaming Build

    Thanks for the RAM tip. I'll look into lower voltage memory. By the way, I'm really considering the Prolimatech Megehelem ($60) now as well. Any recommendation for fans on it? I will probably go push pull. Will this have a large increase in sound?
